Afternoon Dust

Sunset-Sunrise, part 1

Sunset, 9 July is a piece of music programmed by me and performed by the sunset on 9th July 2014. The sunset used a light sensor to interface with software synthesizers and modify some of their variables in real-time. This was enabled using code from my previous SuperCollider post.

An archive containing a recording of the performance and the SuperCollider code can be found here. The code is embarrasingly inelegant, so any tips for improvement would be most welcome; I need to do some more studying. To play back the recording on a Mac, try VOX or VLC.

A sunrise performance will be arranged once we get a little further from the summer solstice…
